Today was a big day for Virgil Abloh, the City of Chicago and the fashion industry as a whole. It is confirmation of the belief that anyone can fulfill their dream of becoming one of the top fashion designers in the world. Virgil Abloh, just another kid from the south side of Chicago, has reached the pinnacle of his career. His rise from Kanye West Creative Director and creating a collection Chaps flannels with Pyrex on the back to Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, arguably the most iconic fashion house in the world, is an accomplishment that we all must applaud.
The Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Menswear Collection, Abloh presented this morning during Paris Fashion Week is something we give a rousing ovation as well. This collection has a little bit of everything. It has the quality tailored straightforward pieces for the Louis Vuitton loyalists, a few on-trend pieces such as the jackets with oversize pockets to serve as a replacement for the fanny pack craze we are living in, as well as the first piece you see below. Which, is for the longtime streetwear admirers of Virgil who are going to be transitioning over to fans the Parisian fashion house.
We will be calling this collection from Pyrex to Paris
